The Xiaomi Redmi 9 reportedly arriving on June 25 has been listed on online retailer Lazada's Filipino site with its images, specs, and pricing.
The specs listed on the e-commerce website align well with previous rumors, meaning the Redmi 9 comes with a Helio G80 SoC under the hood and has two memory versions - 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB. There's also a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The Redmi 9 is built around a 6.53" FullHD+ display that has a notch up top for the 8MP selfie camera. The back of the smartphone, that has a textured finish and looks like a combination of the Redmi K30 and Redmi Note 8 Pro's back panels, is home to a quad camera setup comprising a 13MP main, 8MP ultrawide, 5MP macro and 2MP depth sensor units.
The Redmi 9 comes in three colors and packs a 5,020 mAh battery which draws power through a USB-C port at up to 18W.
Other highlights of the Redmi 9 include a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, AI Face Unlock, IR Blaster, dual SIM support, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The 3GB/32GB version is priced at PHP6,990 ($140/€125) and the 4GB/64GB at PHP7,490 ($150/€135). At the time of writing this, the 32GB version is available for purchase in a flash sale.
That's surprising since Xiaomi's Philippines branch hasn't made any official announcements about the Redmi 9 at the time of writing this, meaning the retailer likely jumped the guns and an official announcement isn't too far away.
Thanks for the tip!
Nope, no more Bluetooth for me. That so-called 50 year old tech is still relevant to day and can produce far FAR better quality than Bluetooth one. I know that because I used to be in the wireless Bluetooth bandwagon. No more of that for me.
